The Inspector General of Police, Japhet Koome, had a meeting with former Chief Justice David Maraga at his office in Nairobi on Monday. The former CJ was recently named by President William Ruto to lead the National Task Force on Improving the Terms and Conditions of Service and Other Reforms for Members of the National Police Service and Prison Service.
The two leaders agreed on what each side should do to help and work with the other to make it easier to get feedback from police officers on the ground and improve their welfare.
The task force's deputy, Carole Kariuki, went with Maraga. The Deputy Inspector General of the Kenya Police Service, Edward Mbugua, and the Deputy Inspector General of the Administration Police Service, Noor Gabow, were also there.
Abdallah Komesha, who is the IG's main assistant, and Mohamed Amin, who is in charge of criminal investigations, are two others.
In a gazette notice from December 21, President Ruto said that police officers need better working conditions and that the government is trying to make sure they have the tools they need to do their jobs.
